What You Must Know About ColdFusion Flow-Controls
Flow control tags exist to control how a program proceeds. Coldfusion uses conditional processing tags to control the flow. This article covers some of the more important flow control tags in the language, as well as script equivalents.

What You Must Know About Operators in ColdFusion!
The fabric of a program consists of expressions, large and small, stitched together with operators and interspersed with functions. The larger expressions as well as the functions themselves may be the result of development from a number of smaller expressions. An understanding of the operators and their correct usage is therefore very essential. This tutorial describes the various operators by presenting comprehensive examples of their usage tested on the MX 6.1 server. lt;CFScript> will be used in all the examples.

Everything You Must Know About ColdFusion Variables
Understanding ColdFusion variables and logic is vital to being able to program in the language. In this tutorial, Jay's second covering ColdFusion, you will learn about the types of ColdFusion variables and how to use them.

My First Application on ColdFusion MX Server
Like HTML, ColdFusion is a tag based language. If you have ever wanted to gain a working knowledge of ColdFusion, you will find this article to be a good place to start. It covers starting and stopping the MX 7 server, configuring a virtual directory, and testing the directory.

Installing the ColdFusion MX Server
This tutorial takes you through two items and considers the establishment of the ColdFusion connector to the Internet Information Server. Some peculiar problems that may arise in a Windows system using multiple languages are also discussed. A future article will be devoted to the use of this software on Java Web servers.

Multiple File Upload with CFFILE
The author explains how to upload documents using the CFFILE tag in ColdFusion. He covers making a form that has an infinite number of fields, using CFLOOP. He starts with getting basic functionality, then moves on to the & fun stuff& -- multiple file upload.

Creating NextPrev Link in Cold Fusion
Creating a Next/Prev link for query results in Cold Fusion is very easy with lt;cfloop gt; tag. Passing parameters to Start row and End row limits the record display in the specified range. Almost all of our database- driven applications require paging of query results. It might be handy if we had a custom tag or script written already. Just what we need is to extend that code wherever we want to place the paging and then change a few parameters. In this article, I show you how we can create Cold Fusion database query results with & Next 1 2 3 4... Prev& links.

Cold Fusion Administration Module
To create a user administration module in Cold Fusion, you would need to create templates that both provides a means to search for or select a user record, and updates the database using an update query. In this example, I created a form that uses a link with a URL parameter to select a user. Other methods would include a search block that would send information to a SELECT query.
